After finding itself in seventh place following the opening day of competition at the North Coast Section Championship tournament held at Liberty High School in Union City, the Del Norte wrestling team finished the two-day tournament tied for 13th overall with a total of 102 points. The Warriors did finish with the highest spot in the standings of any of the other Humboldt-Del Norte League schools represented.
The Warriors sent a total of 12 wrestlers to the weekend competition, with both Chaz Harrison (106 pounds) and Skyler Moore (126 pounds) earning spots on the medal stand. Harrison placed seventh overall in his weight class with a 4-2 record, while Moore finished fifth in his bracket with an identical 4-2 finish over the two days of competition.
Del Norte’s Wyatt Schneck (138 pounds)ended his two days of competition with a 3-2 record, while Nolan Ridgley (145 pounds), Kurtis Turner (170 pounds)and Braydon Henderson (182 pounds) all ended their weekend with 2-2 records. Andre Aflague (106 pounds), Cruz Cerros (120 pounds), Tanner Stancliff (152 pounds) Justin Goudelock (160 pounds) and Brandon Jones (195 pounds) each earned one victory in their respective weight classifications as well.
That concludes what was a highly successful 2018-19 season for the Warrior grapplers, as Del Norte earned its highest finish in program history at the North Coast Section Dual Meet championships held at Eureka High School, while also capturing the outright Humboldt-Del Norte League team title in a meet also held at Eureka High School.
